Many unpleasant things happen around the holidays, rude drivers, rude shoppers, stressed out family, and why? So we can open gifts around a tree with our family? Something we could have easily gotten any other time of the year?
According to reports, Best Buy workers took notice to a younger kid who came in every day to relieve some stress and play the Wii on their demonstration model. This boy didn’t get away with it long before the store manager confronted him!
Reports said his loving parents would have purchased him one but simply couldn’t afford a $300 game, when, they had bills to pay for and food to put on the table.
You can imagine this kid’s surprise when the manager of Best Buy confronted him about his constant use of the Wii. At first, he didn’t believe the manager, then, he was handed a box….
Best Buy employees in Long Island felt compassion on the less fortunate kid and ended up buying him his own console.
One employee, who walked up to the boy, stated:
‘On behalf of all of us here at Best Buy, we got you a WiiU so you don’t have to come here every day to play,’
The worker showed the boy the receipt, to further prove it was not a joke, and then proceeded to walk out with him.
‘This is something we did for you. Everyone here that you see, we all got together and chipped in so you could have it,’ the employee said.
But the young customer was taken aback by the act of kindness and didn’t quite dare grab the box.
‘No for real, this is for you,’ the employee chuckled, telling him it would be an early Christmas present.
Eventually, he accepted the gift and workers gave him a ride home.
The real fun of Christmas is giving to people, and that’s exactly what these Best Buy employees discovered!
Speaking of giving…here’s a tearjerker…
